Mike Hammer, Fiction, Crime & mystery

'[Spillane] was a quintessential Cold War writer, an unconditional believer in good and evil' Washington Times

New York PI Mike Hammer has traced his lost love and secretary, Velda, who went missing seven years ago. In a race against time, Mike has to move her to another location, but she is sheltering a young woman who fears for her life.

Finally safe once again, Hammer devotes his time to helping the young woman, who is being threatened by her stepfather. But as Hammer investigates some leads on the seedier side of town, he finds himself caught up in a three-decades-old mystery involving a great deal of money that's gone missing.

And just who is The Snake?

Mike is going to have to figure that one out, or three lives - his, Velda's and the girl's - are in danger.
